This recorded session was presented as part of the live seminar and webcast, Planning Outside the Box: State Specific Issues for Washington Estate Planners recorded on December 8, 2017, in Seattle, WA. If you attended the live seminar or webcast and reported CLE credits, you cannot also report credits from watching or listening to this recording.

As the trend toward cohabitation without marriage continues, it is important to understand whether and how significant non-marital relationships can affect our clients' estate planning needs.

This presentation reviews basic community property principals that have traditionally applied only to married couples in Washington, and then explores the developing case law that has created community-like equitable interests for certain unmarried couples in committed intimate relationships.

Finally, the presentation discusses committed intimate relationships in the context of estate planning and estate disputes, explaining how a committed intimate relationship can affect an individual’s estate plan, and what planning techniques can be used to prevent surprises--and disputes--upon the passing of an individual who is unmarried but who was (or may have been) in a committed intimate relationship.

Presenter: Paul Firuz – Kutscher Hereford Bertram Burkart PLLC, Seattle
